The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 to be released on 17/04/2012
“The Xbox 360 version is a complete adaptation of the game to the new platform, we’ve rewritten the code so it feels native to the console. This latest version of The Witcher 2 has been expanded in many ways, and some experts believe it to be one of the best-looking games ever to make it to consoles,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED Studio.
Gameplay has been extended through the addition of new quests and locations. The Witcher 2’s intriguing plot is now even more complex thanks to the introduction of major new NPCs who intensify the struggle for power in the Northern Kingdoms.
Other enhancements include the game’s user interface, which has been revamped to provide for better control on the Xbox 360, while new targeting, camera and control systems will give players full control of the witcher during the game’s dynamic and tactically rich combat sequences.
“PC users who already own the game will be happy to learn that they will be able to download all the added content free of charge. At the same time, the Xbox 360 version will incorporate all DLCs and upgrades made available thus far for the game’s original platform (including the ‘Arena’ arcade mode and Tutorial that were part of the latest and richest PC version),” added Badowski.

I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (6 minutes ago)
They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (8 minutes ago)
That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (9 minutes ago)
it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (9 minutes ago)
EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (10 minutes ago)
NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (14 minutes ago)
Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (29 minutes ago)
